Blog Prompt #4
Architecture school has less constraints than most other fields of study but there are still requirements that must be completed before receiving your bachelor's degree. These constraints hinder the effect students have on the environment whether it is artistically or otherwise.
If I were released from the restrictions of the school of architecture, I would be able to have a greater impact upon the environment. Though this task would still be considerably difficult, I feel as though it would be much easier outside of the school of architecture. All kinds of opportunities would be available to me. The most practical mode of impacting my environment would be through either an internship or an apprenticeship.
Both of these occupations would give me more hands on experience which would result in a higher quantity of finished products. This is important because as we all know theory doesn't impact the environment, action does. Architectural school promotes work outside of the school but our success or failure is not directly related to what we accomplish. A larger emphasis is placed on what we have learned and how well we apply that.
